Road work

Dear Editor:

What has happened to the quality of work being done on our roads? I drive these roads daily and it seems to me that in the past five or six years that the quality has been on a steady decline.

The roads used to be in pretty good shape and the work was well done. The chip job on the west side of Pagosa is of very poor quality. There are large spots that were not covered and the sweeping was shoddy at best, driveways were not cleaned out and weeks after the job was completed there is still a lot of loose rock on road. Painting of the stripes was left uncompleted.

Whoever is in charge should be looking for another job. It appears he or she does not know how to get the job done correctly or does not care. I have lived here for 22 years and know CDOT can do better.
